Database Manager on July 05, 2010:

Identified through online information from Chad Boorsma. -- This was a major rebuilding of the organ. Pipes were moved, cleaned, and revoiced. Windchests were restored. The console exterior was refinished, but the inside of the console was completely rebuilt. The facade pipes were cleaned and repainted gold, and plaster was removed to create additional openings to allow more sound into the nave. During this process, ornamental fretwork grilles were discovered behind the plaster (probably from the church's previous 1893 Felgemaker organ) and were restored for use once again.
